PHP SHGetFolderPath

Hi all..

I don't normally develop PHP scripts for windows, let alone specifically, but was wondering if it's possible somehow to get the value of CSIDL_APPDATA via SHGetFolderPath or some other method somehow?

I'm looking to write an integration script that I'll be happy to release here.. but this is a bit of a stumbling block for cross-os-versions (XP/ Seven, etc).

Any info greatly appreciated.



Cheers..

Ian

Figured out a way of doing this now...

Either: $appdata = rtrim(`echo %APPDATA%`) or $_SERVER['APPDATA'].



Cheers..

not even $_ENV['APPDATA'] ? I thought it's more natural to find environment variables in $_ENV

Thanks for the suggestion (I don't do a lot of PHP shell scripting.. I normally do that in Perl).. but I checked this and I get an empty array when doing a var_dump() on $_ENV.



Cheers..

seems it has something to do with settings in php.ini
